MIDWEEK: Tubular Easter Favor

When I think of Spring, I think about the cheery colors of the rainbow and cute little baby animals. And candy, I think about candy!

At Christmas time, most people think about giving and getting presents. Most people expect this gift giving tradition. But at Easter, one of my best friends once told me she loved Easter gifts because they were unexpected. Almost like a random act of kindness gift.

As crafters, many people make little Easter treats to share with children and our adult friends, too. So, it helps if they are easy and cost little to make.

This Easter bunny is both. Recycle some paper roll tubes and that makes a sturdy base. Cover with cardstock and wither make the facial features with cardstock scraps or just draw them on with markers. Roll up some candy in tissue paper and place inside the tube. The tissue ends become the bunny ears. Make a bunch of these favors to give to family and friends. By the way, did you know a bunch of bunnies is called a fluffle? Isn’t that so cute?!

Happy Spring, Happy Crafting!
